For many of us, bird watching is enjoyable hobby. You've got to love the performances and antics of all the different birds as they fly about searching for food. I find it amazing to watch all the bright colors and different species that come to my garden, it's a wonderful way to spend a few minutes, or even the best part of the day if you can manage it.
You probably already know that one of the best ways to attract birds to your garden is with a feeder. It's not hard to make a wood bird feeder, and it's even more fun to make one on the lathe.
|Ant Barrier - Green Turning with Recycled Plastics|
By: James Duxbury
In this photo tutorial, Jim shows us how he uses a recycled plastic billet to turn an ant barrier to his hummingbird feeder.
Jim tells us all the issues with turning this type of plastic while showing us how to make this project. Even though this plastic is not a lot of fun to turn, it's really useful to projects outdoors!

You’ll love to watch the birds gather around this turned feeder. This is a wonderful turned project for a beginner. It's only 2 turned parts; the top and the bottom. The center is a plastic tube (think soda bottle). In no time at all, your local birds will be eating at your feeder!
